The Practice

Balston Agius is a British landscape and garden design practice based in Wiltshire and London, operating on both a national and international basis. Our experience, built over a period of more than 30 years, lies in the fields of landscape and garden design, landscape planning, architecture, horticulture and management. Although the heart of our business is in the creative design of landscapes, gardens and their buildings, and their realisation, the company also carries out other related tasks such as urban planning, estate planning, costing reviews where required, as well as Public Inquiries.

The team currently numbers seven full time experienced and flexible staff. We are therefore able to ensure that each job receives close personal attention and a bespoke service, both at the design stage, and during its execution and later management. That said, our size does not preclude us from undertaking large scale projects with the same care and attention, tapping into our well developed network of consultants and assistants both at home and abroad, and drawing on additional external expertise as and when required. This is amply demonstrated by some of the work showcased in our portfolio.

At Balston Agius we design with passion. We create exciting, innovative and beautiful environments throughout the UK and internationally. We listen to Clients and collaborators and, working creatively, build on their intentions. We develop an in-depth understanding of each site. Our skill is to turn a well thought through concept into a finely constructed and planted reality.

Our guiding principle is to achieve synergy between architecture, horticulture and management through original and inspirational designs. At the same time, we are thoroughly realistic about limitations presented by the site – the location, history, planning or budget. We firmly believe that a close relationship and constructive dialogue with our Clients at all times throughout a job is of paramount importance in achieving world class results.
